Charity has had run-ins with Cain (Jeff Hordley), Moira, Emma, Ross (Michael Parr), Nicola (Nicola Wheeler), even Doug (Duncan Preston), since her return to the village – but so far she’s only come out on top against Nicola.
We think that’s about to change in Easter Monday’s episode – in dramatic style.
Holly “Let’s get high!” Barton clearly has no idea that she made a pact with the devil in Good Friday’s episode of Emmerdale when she sat down with Charity (Emma Atkins).
It could be the drugs she’s used that have messed up Holly’s head so much she can’t see trouble staring her in the face. Or she could just be Moira’s (Natalie J Robb) daft wee girl.
Either way, she’s so desperate for money to pay off her drug dealer that she told Charity: “I’ve thought of a way for us both to get what we need.”
Holly tells Charity she has a plan to earn them both some money
Her plan? To rob The Woolpack. Charity would get the money she needs to actually buy her share of the pub and Holly could get her dealer off her back.
“You think I’d actually rob from Chas [Lucy Pargeter]?’ Charity asks…
And she genuinely seemed horrified by the idea. Even, though, just a week earlier, she was trying to sell her baby, Moses, to Emma (Gillian Kearney).

“We’d make it look like a break-in. Nobody would get hurt. I get two grand, you get the rest,” Holly told Charity.
“How do I know I can trust you?” Charity demanded.
“You don’t. You’ll have to take a risk.”
“All right. I’m in,” Charity told her.
But we reckon it’s Holly (Sophie Powles) who’s in…in it right up to her neck.
Charity definitely wants to buy into The Woolpack but we’re not at all convinced that she has bought into Holly’s plan.
Does Charity sees Holly as the solution to her problems – or a problem she needs to resolve?
Charity’s only just got out of prison for the insurance fraud at Home Farm and she’s in no hurry to go back there. But one slip-up with Holly and that’s exactly where she’ll be.
Holly hardly has the makings of a criminal mastermind – and she’s only been off drugs for three weeks. We think Charity will see Holly as a problem, not a solution.
And we’ve seen how Charity deals with problems in the past… She tried to kill husband Declan (Jason Merrells) when their marriage went wrong.
We think Charity will crucify Holly… But will it be before, during, or after the robbery?
